Tools for Citizen engagement, social inclusion, empowerment. Parapolis - how citizen participation regarding urban development can be enhanced with new media. It elaborates how ideas from citizens concerning their local neighborhoods can be collected and later transformed into visual representations. Medearesearchers also explores how new media services in combination with social innovation can enhance groups of citizens everyday activities, making them into a resource for the public sphere and surrounding community (and in the long run possibly establishing and increasing business opportunities for them as a commercial cooperative).
This lab focuses on new ways to produce, promote, distribute and finance cultural productions as well as on ways to engage audiences in participating in professional creative processes.

Most research on IoT concerns the technological infrastructure. Thus, the human users are to a large extent excluded. However, most products and services based on IoTwill include human users in the loop, in some way or other. Moreover, it is what the users need and want that decides what products and services become successful. Thus, IoT is not (only) about the infrastructure, it is even more about the applications, and the applications are about people.We argue that in order to develop successful products and services that are meaningful and useful, the perspective of the users must be integrated in the studies of IoT.
Connectivity Lab is an experimental prototype arena where skills, tech and researchers & students meet with entrepreneurs and companies to help create new and better services, experiences and products in the field of digital media and connected devices. The lab uses virtual/physical prototyping as a method to test and develop new formats, services and products, thereby creating a more efficient and productive collaboration between research resources and the professional and creative industries, start-ups, experts, companies and organizations.
